Hello there! Do you have a favorite item that you like to give? For me, it’s a set of all-occasion handmade greeting cards. For many, cards are a way to celebrate specific occasions or a way to express emotions. But no matter the reason for sending a card, one thing is for sure—they’re always sure to brighten someone’s day!
This beautiful set consists of four different cards/envelopes and an adorable little window box to hold them. To create this set I used the Love Sparkles Stamp Set (item #143183), Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (item # 131527), and silver Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (item # 138435). Various other elements such as Silver Metallic Thread (item # 138402), Rhinestone Basic Jewels (item #119246), 5/8" Silver Satin Ribbon (item # 134548), and Silver Sequin Trim (item # 138399) were used to embellish the cards.
The first is a thank you card. The flower was created using the Big Shot (item # 143263) and Succulent Framelits Dies (item # 142757). Not only are these dies used to create succulents but they also make pretty flowers! This Daffodil Delight Cardstock (item #119683) flower is the perfect addition to this card. It adds a subtle yet pretty touch to this soft color scheme.
Next up is a gorgeous love note. This sweet card features the Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (item # 142761) and a Real Red Cardstock (item # 102482) heart cut from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies (item #141489). The Love banner was created by stamping the Love sentiment in Real Red ink (item # 126949) on a Pink Pirouette Cardstock (item # 111351) banner. A tiny little white bow from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack (item # 142737) adorns the right side of the heart.
The last two cards are pretty much dual purpose. Since they don’t specifically refer to any occasion they can either be for a birthday, congratulations, or just because. The first one features an adorable balloon bouquet created with the Balloon Bouquet Punch (item #140609) and the silver Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (item #138435). A simple Pool Party Cardstock (item # 122924) banner stamped with Island Indigo ink (item #126986) adds the perfect finishing touch!
Last but not least, this card says “It’s your day to sparkle” (another dual purpose card). My favorite element on this card is the little banner created using the Confetti Stars Punch (item # 135861). So fun!
This picture shows how the completed set looks all boxed up and ready to go.
